We bought our first real Christmas tree this year--a six-foot, North Carolina Frasier fir. My four-year-old daughter, a.k.a. Keeper of the Care Bears, claimed the honor of hanging the first decoration: Cheer Bear can stay, but I'm drawing the line at Bratz doll ornaments.

One of the special treats of the NR cruise was an advance screening of I Am David, a family-friendly movie that chronicles a 12-year-old boy's escape from a Bulgarian labor camp. It's scheduled for limited release in theaters on December 3. Check it out.
